Behind the Scenes at Summer Nationals

Last week I was conducting interviews for Fencing For The Edge in a side room of the Columbus Convention Center. Thanks to everyone who found us and shared their stories! Don’t worry, we’ll be doing some more interviews in New Jersey once the season begins. For now, it’s grant writing and fundraising time! Keep an eye out for our IndieGoGo campaign launching in September.

ITVS Grant Application

It’s grant application season! I’m applying for my first grant tomorrow through ITVS, a public television support organization. I think the film would be a great special on television, so that’s why I’m applying. Here’s more about ITVS Open Call:

Open Call provides completion funds for single nonfiction public television programs on any subject, and from any viewpoint. Projects must have begun production as evidenced by a work-in-progress video. Open Call funding is only available to independent producers who are citizens or legal residents of the U.S. and its external territories.

Proof that I’m in production, here’s another still from the Santelli tournament for your enjoyment:
